Out of the total Initial fund size amounting to Rs. 18.35 billion, TPL Properties Limited (TPLP), the strategic investor in the fund, contributes Rs. 7.1 billion of land value to the fund in the form of Investment Property (Initial Asset Portfolio), while the remaining Rs. 11.25 billion (Fresh Raise) is a fresh equity raise by the largest banks in Pakistan (Anchor Investors), of which TPL REIT has received disbursements worth Rs. 5.625 billion.

The initial funds that TPL REIT received will be deployed in financing the development costs of the Initial Asset Portfolio, which includes the first Technology Park in Pakistan, the first sustainable integrated master plan community (Mangrove), and a residential asset (One Hoshang).
